Nyango Star (にゃんごすたー) is a giant Japanese mascot cat-fruit hybrid whose ability to slay the drums has become an internet sensation. In the updated video above, Nyango Star is at a children’s concert playing Anpanman’s March, the theme to an animated show called Soreike! Anpanman.
The character performs around Japan as a mascot for the city of Kuroishi in Aomori Prefecture, a region known for their apples. According to the Nyango Star website, our hero is part cat, part apple, and all metal. 😸🍎🤘
